KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Oct. 4, 2016)—Stinson Leonard Street is pleased to announce that partner Matthew Salzman has been elected a Trustee-at-Large by the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation.
The Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation is a collaborative, educational, non-profit organization dedicated to the scholarly and practical study of the laws and regulations relating to mining, oil and gas, energy, public lands, water, environmental and international law.
The Foundation is led by a board of directors and guided by a trustees council composed of representatives from law schools, bar association and mining and oil and gas associations. Trustees-at-Large, like Salzman, are elected each year. As a group, the trustees include those who are recognized by their peers to be among the top professors and lawyers in their respective fields from around the country and who are willing to commit the time to further the purposes of the Foundation.
Salzman is a partner in the firm's Kansas City office, and one of the chairs of the firm's oil and gas practice group. He has represented clients in several oil and gas class actions, including multiple antitrust class actions and over a dozen royalty owner and overriding royalty owner class actions, one of which he recently successfully took to the United States Supreme Court.
Salzman also represents clients in all types of oil and gas litigation, including operator/non-operator disputes, oilfield service provider overbilling disputes, fraud investigations, title disputes, lease termination disputes, and surface damage and right-of-way disputes. He also has almost two decades of experience working with unregulated pipeline companies on common carrier, tariff, capacity, throughput and expansion issues. Salzman has represented exploration and production companies, midstream companies, and pipeline companies in litigation and non-litigation matters in several states including Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, North Dakota, Montana, Arkansas, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Wyoming.
